According to the company’s risk evaluation matrix, all reported accidents range in severity betwenn minor and low. The frequency rate reached 2.14% in 2013 in comparison with 6% recorded in 2006. This performance was achieved thanks to the updating and good use of general safety procedures, staff training on first aid procedures and education on safety and hygiene quality guidelines.
No security incident linked to incursions has been registered. The company adopted strict measures to avoid all exterior threats, people accessing the site were identified , measures linked to vehicle access were strengthened, critical areas of Mohammedia site were monitored by using CCTV, automatic access control system were used.
